On May 23, 2017, Bill A07977 (“Bill”) was proposed to the New York State Assembly potentially impactingthe practice of laser hair removal in New York.  The Bill seeks to amend existing statutes and add language to clarify what constitutes laser hair removal, the qualifications of person performing laser hair removal, and the role of estheticians in laser hair removal.  This Bill is important because New York currently does not regulate laser hair removal.

Specifically, the Bill proposes adding language that defines laser hair removal as “the use of a laser or pulsed light device in a hair removal procedure that does not remove the epidermis.”  Also, the Bill seeks to add language expressly stating that “[t]he practice of “esthetics” shall include laser hair removal or intense pulses of light hair removal performed on any part of the human body.”  The Bill would also create a sub-class of estheticians called laser hair removal technicians, which would mean “a licensed esthetician whose practice is limited to laser hair removal.”
